High-dose vitamin D does not affect muscle strength, balance in postmenopausal women

High-dose vitamin D does not affect muscle strength, balance in postmenopausal women
April 21, 2017

Muscular strength, balance and quality of life in postmenopausal women with osteopenia or osteoporosis were unaffected by high-dose vitamin D supplementation compared with standard doses, according to findings published in Clinical Endocrinology.

Guri Grimnes, MD, PhD, of the division of internal medicine, University Hospital of North Norway, and colleagues evaluated 297 postmenopausal women with osteopenia or osteoporosis receiving daily elemental calcium (1,000 mg) plus vitamin D3 (800 IU) randomly assigned to capsules with additional vitamin D3 (20,000 IU; high-dose group; n = 149) or placebo (standard dose group; n = 148) twice per week for 12 months.
